                                                                  Baby contented
                                                       After  a taste of mother's milk
                                                                 sleeping in peace.



                                                                  Rich  rat race
                                                             ssleep evades, worries  many
                                                                   how to fill coffers.

                                                              Parrot in gold cage
                                                          Not content, looks at friends
                                                               happy  in freedom.
